TIP OF THE DAY: DIY Crostini Bar
If you’re going to kick back this weekend with friends and some lovely libations, or have a group over for brunch, you may need a snack idea.
Here it is: DIY Crostini.
The crunchy little toasts are great with wine or beer, and a fun food when people add their own toppings.
Set out all kinds of sweet and savory toast toppings and let your guests help themselves. We’ve got flavor combo ideas galore, but let your imagination run wild.
You decide how many options you want to offer. Here’s are some options, plus a recipe for White Bean Dip & Spread below.
Guests start by choosing a spread for the crostini:
Offer as many or as few as you like:
1. COMBINE all ingredients in a food processor and purée until smooth. Taste for seasoning and add more lemon or salt as desired.
2. MAKE the crostini. Heat the oven to 400°F. Slice the bread and drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Bake for 10 minutes or until the bread is golden brown.
